All around fun !!! Drinks, dance , great weekend place – This is one of the best bars in Houston. I had 5 girlfriends from collage in town for a girls weekend. We had nit seen each other in the same room in a couple of years so expectations were high. We went to dinner and then were looking for a night out. The Remington was perfect. It is high end but fun. Great great music. We literally danced for hours to to the band. Great martini !! Good wine list. One of the girls is a big wine fan and was impressed. Bar service good. Bar was crowded but it did not take forever to get served. We relocated from the bar to a sofa area in the back and closed the place down talking and laughing. All around perfect.
THE BEST DANCING AND MUSIC IN HOUSTON – Me and my girls live right in the neighborhood and love to get a group together and go over on Friday or Saturday for some dancing and fun. The bands they have are great and better then Sullivan's and the bartender MAKES GREAT DRINKS. We went over to celebrate New Years Eve and had a blast - Great music - The Valet are fast - A gem right next to River Oaks - !! Highly Recommended!! Tip take turns ordering your drinks from the bar - Cocktail waitress" can be slow... Also has couches behind the bar area to escape and talk.
I love it!! – classy, safe,great music,great drinks,harris is the best bartender in houston,the vallet parkings are very professional.
Great food and service – We went over there for our 30th Anniversary and we were not disappointed.Very nice ambience and excellent service.Food was terrific.A great place to celebrate special events and the price was not that super expensive,we would definitely go back.
very disappointing – we had our daughter's wedding reception here last year and everything was superb. went for dinner on Christmas Eve and had a very mediocre experience. Set menu was unimaginative and limited. Quality of everything was below ave. room was too bright which diminished atmosphere. maybe the chef was on vacation! but will take some convincing to try again.
A Pleasant Surprise --- Great Service – I took my out-of-town guest to The Remington because I heard they hired a new chef and there has been a menu change. I've been to the restaurant several times in the past and it was good. To my surprise, the food was better than I could have imagined. The servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and even helped to pair my menu choice with wine. I plan on being a regular at the restaurant.
Highly rated... and deservingly so! – We decided to give Remington a try after reading online that they were rated one of the best by Zagat. I can definitely see why! The service was impeccable and the crab cakes were the best I've ever had. My husband had the filet and loved it. We're planning on returning, but next time will make it a weekend and stay the night at the St. Regis. Lovely restaurant and hotel!!!
Best Restaurant in Houston – I recently went to the Remington Restaurant with my girlfriend this past weekend. To say the least, it was phenomenal. I was warmly greeted by the hostess, Kristen, who gladly showed me to my table. I was then promptly greeted by our waiter, Nelso. He was very knowledgeable about the food menu and wine list. I started off with the goat cheese salad, which was so beautifully plated; I almost didn't want to eat it. After the salad, I was then greeted with another masterpiece, my entree. I had the Fruit de Mare. Eating out a lot, I was scared to order a seafood dish because it is often overcooked, but the lobster, scallop, and shrimp couldn't have been cooked any better. I summed up my dining experience with a Creme Brulee, which also was delightful. My girlfriend had the Tortilla Soup, the Duck Sampler, and ended with a Trio of Chocolate. She told me that it was the best restaurant experience shes has ever had. I think my girlfriend was a little upset I was more into my food than her. To sum it all up, the food is world class, the prices are very reasonable, and the service was outstanding. I highly recommended this fine establishment.
Pleasant Surprise ! – I brought my husband and out of town friends to the Remington and thought going to the restaurant at the St. Regis would be a treat. The Remington lived up to all our expectations (try the duck sampler if available- the waiter said the menu is seasonal). Service was great! They let us talk and just enjoy ourselves.
We like trying new places and this restaurant exceeded our expectations. We definately will be going back sooner than later.
Bad night? – I went on Saturday evening with my family to celebrate my stepmother's 60th birthday. The place is beautiful but weirdly quiet. We were the only diners on a Saturday evening and just knew something was amiss.
Our waiter seemed inexperienced and had a hard time understanding our questions. When asked about recommendations, he seemed to be unfamiliar with the menu.
I had the seabass which was absolutely delicious and my husband had the halibut which was spectacular. However my stepmom had the ribeye which was very tough. She sent it back and ordered the Sea Bass. It took 30 minutes and it came out charred.
There are a lot of rave reviews but considering the price, the lack of good service and inconsistent food quality, we won't be back.
